Coomand to download from HTTP(URL)

Hi,

What is the UNIX command to download a file or data from HTTP location.
CURL(Linux) did not work.

Thank You

I use wget
Code:
wget [URL]

lwp-download - fetch large files from the net

Code:
lwp-download [-a] <url> [<local file>]

The lwp-download program will down load the document specified by the URL given as the first command line argument to a local file.

Thank You Smilie , But the command "wget" and "lwp-download" are not found in our Unix. Looks like, they are Linux version commands.

What is your UNIX, anyway? You never said.

None of these are Linux-specific; wget in particular works on anything from DOS to VMS to Windows to UNIX. You simply do not have any of them installed. You may be able to build them from source. http://www.gnu.org/software/wget/index.html
http://curl.haxx.se/

Ruling out curl, wget, and lwp-download rules out the three most popular pieces of software for this. I really don't think we're keeping any top-secret Standard UNIX URL Downloader(tm) from you. Smilie
